Re: rhodes Commodore swiftsure

yeah Jeff's right, the DeVries Lentsch yard, and they were under the Seafarer name I believe. My dad was a Seafarer dealer in Marblehead in the 60s and 70s. Good boats, traditional wineglass shape, short waterline longer overhangs compared to todays fatties, very nice-handling, not wildly fast it's true. But seakindly and will keep you safe. If she still has that awful roller-reefing, change it over to jiffy reef, but you'll make a lot of changes anyway if you're looking to sail her deep-ocean.
